How much are hayrides and apple bags?

Hayrides are $2 per person over the age of three. To see if hayrides are open today, please click here. Apple picking bags come in two sizes, a peck bag ($25) and a 1/2 bushel bag ($38). These activities are seasonal and weather dependent. We do have requirements for picking bags, and you can find that information here.

Do you spray your trees?

Honey Pot Hill is an IPM orchard. Integrated Pest Management means that we monitor our orchard for insects and infections and spray only when needed. Spraying is costly and time consuming. We don't like it either, but we do what is necessary to protect our fruit.

Can we come to walk around the orchard?

No, Honey Pot Hill is private property, and we expect all customers to respect property hours and bag requirements. 

Can I bring a stroller?

Yes, you may bring a stroller, but they are NOT allowed on hayrides. Please be aware that the orchard is mainly dirt paths and includes hills. 

Is your orchard wheelchair accessible?

The orchard is mainly dirt paths, with few flat areas. There is limited wheelchair accessibility.

Do you take card?

We only accept card payments in the farm store and donut windows, we have a $5 minimum. We do have an ATM available. Most other places on the orchard are cash only, with some ATMs available for use.

When does apple picking end?

We are typically open for apple picking from early August into early November. These dates are approximate. To see what we are picking today, please use this link.

Are you shipping apples?

We start shipping in November
